3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Euston Tap. Dark amber/brown colour with small white head. Aroma is a bit stinky dish cloth funkiness and a bit malty. Taste is malty and creamy with an increasingly bitter finish. Slightly herbal element. Medium bodied and sightly oily and prickly in the mouth. Very nice.

Cask, The Greystones, Sheffield. Dense copper amber, creamy head. Balanced aroma, sweet caramel and coriander. Sweet, thick with a butterscotch and honey flavour that is challenged by a line and alcohol bitterness. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a ruby brown, fairly big off-white head. Aroma is malty, with some citrus and earthy hoppiness. Taste is more hop-based - very bitter with some raisins, spicy hops and some caramel notes. You get the feeling the beer gives those up almost begrudgingly - it’s very bitter, with a brash finish. Not really my thing because of that. Still very good.

For me this was chewy and malty to the max. Aroma was low, flavour was low but bitterness was high. Tough one but enjoyable
